Going For Gold

2016_Summer_Olympics_logo.svgI’m getting more than slightly caught up in the buzz surrounding the Olympics, even though I’m not sporty in the slightest (I’m the biggest couch potatoe on the planet actually). I can’t help it, I don’t sleep much anyway so I’m sitting watching the different events through the night instead of those rubbish made for tv movies and infomercials, watching all these brilliant athletes Going For Gold for themselves and their country, it’s so inspiring and addictive. I especially like seeing my fellow Irish’ winning medals.

What’s also brilliant is Bet365 Casino’s current promotion which is tied in with the Olympics absolutely perfectly – The Going For Gold €50,000 promotion. The casino over at Bet365 is probably the best on the internet – trust me, I’ve tried them all – and this promotion is great idea and so much fun to take part it – it’s like really taking part in the Olympic Games without being athletic, or having to fly out to Rio.

You can win varying amounts depending on how well you do, from €25 – €1500 if you’re within the top 100 players for each day. How cool is that? I’d be more than happy to win myself a couple of gold medals, heck even a bronze medal would be awesome!

As the world gathers for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the Casino at Bet365 is marking this great occasion with their own incredible €50,000 Going For Gold promotion.

Over the course of the Olympic Games there are 20 exciting Going for Gold events taking place at bet365 where players can compete for both cash prizes and medals. The more medals that you win, the higher up the leaderboard you are placed and greater your chance of winning the top prizes.

In each event, the top 100 players will each win a medal. The first 15 players will receive a Gold medal, the next 35 players will win a Silver medal and the next 50 will be rewarded with a Bronze medal. At the end of the competition, players will be awarded cash prizes according to their final position on the leaderboard and their status in the bet365 VIP Royalty Scheme.

“We’re aiming to emulate the spirit and excitement of the Olympic Games with this promotion” explains Tom Galanis, Casino Marketing Manager at Bet365. “Here anyone from many nations is welcome to participate and compete for the glory of victory. Everyone has a chance of winning a medal plus the opportunity to win one of our great cash prizes.”

As well as the Going For Gold promotion which runs from the 9th to the 24th of August, there are many other reasons to visit the Casino at bet365. These include progressive jackpots on the slots worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, the thrill of live dealer Blackjack and Roulette, an excellent Royalty Scheme and a wealth of information to help improve your game.

So whether you’re Going for Gold this August or just want to experience heart pounding fun at one of the best casinos on the internet, remember that there’s always something for everyone in the Casino at bet365.


I’ve just gotten in the door after leaving the house 5 hours ago to do some shopping at a retail park with my mum. We managed to spend just €20 and that was €3 on lunch (McDonalds pound menu) and €17 in work on juice, milk and bread. Typical. I was so looking forward to buying little things in Ikea or a few pairs of trousers for work in Next or TK Maxx but every single shop that we went into was rubbish – shelves were half empty or items over-priced.

The whole point of going out in the first place was to let me do some driving but ended up I didn’t have a chance – mainly because the weather and traffic were horrendous. Hopefully I’ll manage to get out for an hour or two tomorrow since I feel like I haven’t been driving for ages and I want to sit my test soon, I’m fed up relying on buses to get around everywhere and taxis are costing me a fortune.

I’ve got to laugh at this listing on eBay for Irn Bru glasses – €14.99 buy it now? Those glasses are free for goodness sake. There are about 150 of them sitting in the backshop in work – we’re handing them out with a purchase of 2 x 2 litre bottles of Irn Bru and people are selling them for €15? What on earth is the world thinking?
